Handcrafting leather sandals is a traditional way of shoemaking that has been practiced for centuries all around the world. Come learn how to do this special craft yourself! Join me at the charming & chic Briar Shop in Belmont for an evening of sandal making. No experience is necessary, and I will provide all the tools & supplies (plus snacks & prosecco too!) See photos of past workshops HERE

In this workshop you will learn to make your own custom pair of sandals made from sturdy leather soles & heels and supple leather straps and insoles. Together we will explore the sandal-making process, from cutting the straps to fitting them to your own feet.

You will choose from four different sandal design that are simple and easy for beginners to master: the toe ring sandal (my personal favorite), the two strap slide sandal, the grecian sandal, and the ankle-buckle sandal.

Choose from four different leather colors: black, espresso, caramel, natural

At the end of the evening I’ll take your sandals to my studio to sand down the edges, refining the fit and finishing the edges. Your sandals will be ready to pick up the following day at Briar Shop.


Where: Briar Shop, 924 Ralston Ave, Belmont CA

When: Thursday March 7, 2019 from 5pm-8:30pm (some of you may finish a little earlier or a little later)

What to bring: working hands and outfits! We will be cutting, kneeling, bending and standing during the sandal making process so wear something comfortable. It’s best to wear sandals as we will be getting in and out of shoes during the fitting process.

Fee: $200, includes everything you need to walk away with your very own pair of handmade sandals! All tools, leather, patterns, supplies, and materials will be provided. Light snacks will be served, and we’ll celebrate your accomplishment with a glass of prosecco once we’re done using any sharp tools
